Message from College Principal
Welcome to the HKU SPACE Po Leung Kuk Stanley Ho Community College (HPSHCC) website!
It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you HPSHCC, one that shares the same vision and aspirations as the leading HKU SPACE Community College -- to provide high quality sub-degree higher education to youngsters and to guide them find the path to success.
As the Principal of both Colleges, I assure you that the programmes offered by the two institutes are of comparable standard and that awards issued are of equal standing. All academic programmes offered at HPSHCC go through the same stringent quality assurance process, with faculty members from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and practitioners from the relevant industries undertaking the laborious tasks of assessing the academic standards and training relevancy of our programmes. Successful completion of any programme offered by HPSHCC leads to an award within the University of Hong Kong (HKU) system through HKU SPACE.
The two Colleges also share a similar educational philosophy of emphasising on an interactive mode of teaching and learning, with the objective of stimulating students' intellectual curiosity and spirit of creativity, such that their interest in learning can be rekindled and be sustained for life. In establishing HPSHCC, it is our hope and mission that more and diverse opportunities will be provided to youngsters with different aspirations and they will be helped in achieving their goals in life.
HPSHCC now offers a wide range of Associate Degree, Higher Diploma and Diploma in Foundation Studies programmes to the secondary school leavers, so as to ensure that the students can find the programme that best suits their strengths and aptitude. All programmes have been designed to provide students with not just specialised skills in particular professions, but also generic skills and language ability to perform well in their future endeavours. Moreover, our caring lecturers, in their roles as teachers, friends and advisors, will provide the quality teaching while at the same time organise a wide array of co-curricular activities that nurture students’ holistic development. It is our wish that our students will grow in all aspects during the brief period they spend at HPSHCC.
Last but not least, HPSHCC has its own purpose-built state-of-the-art campus situated in the pleasant part of the city, Causeway Bay. Ample space has been designated for students’ self-learning and out-of-classroom activities. We wish to create an enriching environment that contributes not only to the high standard of academic achievement, but also to the social, personal and intellectual development of the students.
This website will tell you more about our programmes as well as provide more information about the College. I hope you will find programmes that interest you and enable you pursuing a brighter future.
